It seems like one of every bodys favorite Basketball Wives Tami Roman has a lot to talk about.Â Recently she dished about aÂ Â few topics near and dear to her; ranging from giving advice to her daughters, her new boyfriend, and lessons learned from her divorce from retired Basketball star Kenny Anderson.
Advice given to her teen-age daughters Jazz and Lyric:
“What Iâ€™m teaching them is that I firmly believe you have find somebody that is
equally yoked. And there is no perfect mate. That person does not exist. So you
have to be realistic in what it is that you want. And when you look in the
mirror at that person â€” when you look in the mirror at self, first you have to
be honest about what it is that you want. And now youâ€™ve got to find that
reflection in the man that you have to sit across from every day.”
Kenny Anderson and the Divorce
“For me, having been in a relationship with Kenny,
I always wanted to have the house, the cars, just the finer things in life. And
thatâ€™s what I asked God for and God gave me that.
You have to make changes within yourself, and
thatâ€™s what I did. I fell all the way down to the bottom. I allowed people to
dictate what type of house I should have, what type of car I should drive, what
type of friend. I lost family members. I lost close friends . . . I lost a lot
being in that relationship. And I fell all the way to the bottom and I got on my
knees and I said, â€œLord help me.â€. . . I became a victim of the lifestyle â€” of
what I thought I should be and how I should act and how I should present myself.
I really did forget the Tami that would go to my cousinâ€™s house and sleep on the
twin bed. It took me falling down to come back to being myself. So I was able to
attract that kind of person now.â€
Someone thatâ€™s gonna look out for me and take
care of me the way that I thought a man was supposed to do. I got that and it
wasnâ€™t a pleasant place. So when I separated and eventually divorced Kenny, Now
my thought process was, please send me somebody thatâ€™s God-fearing. Somebody who
understands family. Somebody who has morals. Somebody who respects women.
Someone who values commitment and things like that. And thatâ€™s what I got. And
that to me is more important than being able to go into Louis Vuitton and get
the latest handbag.”
Keeping “Bastketball Wife”Â Tami away from current boyfriend, movie director Jerry LaMothe:
“Oh, my boyfriend doesnâ€™t watch â€˜Basketball
Wives.â€™ He feels that you can easily be railroaded with a show like this,
because they have one mission, which is to show us in a dramatic light. And most
of the time you see us arguing and it looks like people are going back and forth
and thatâ€™s not all we do. (laughs) You know there one plenty of moments where
weâ€™re having a good time, weâ€™re laughing, weâ€™re joking. I have a charity,
Shaunie came to my charity. We helped out a young girl through a semester of
college. The will never show that stuff.”
Well look at that… A side we normally don’t get to see fromÂ Ms.Roman, it’s nice to see the progression she made and her not always being on the defensive side. Keep it up Tami.
What y’all think about her life situations and advice to fellow loved ones?
